    just two fitment types to your centre section....sleeve and flange, a flange looks like an oval with two bolts holding it on, a sleev is just shoved into the pipe and clamped together...should be fairly easy to tell what you have by popping your head under the car mate.

    yes providing its from the same bodystyle and its from a normally aspirated petrol model.... ie a diesel or turbo petrol or estate or van wouldnt fit....

    a coupe/cab one would but the tailpipe sticks out an additiona 13cm so would need to be cut/shut
